Ann's Solo - Episode II

Hello Again. In the next few days I'll be heading East on my holidays. Last summer I went straight south to New Orleans and here's a link to that RR. http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=805218

This time I'm gonna try and write the RR from the road as opposed to a year later.

The route and timelines are still pretty loose, but all I know is that I have to be back at my desk by the 10th of September. I did a trip to Boston in 2009 wherein I went almost entirely through the US. I haven't really explored Canada on the bike, so this is the summer to remedy that and visit a few of friends in Ontario and Montreal along the way.

Here's a rough idea of what my route will look like, although, don't hold me to it if I decide that I never want to leave Montreal. Everything after New York will really be fly by the seat of my pants. I haven't decided if I'll ride home through the States (most likely) or I'll head back up North and ride home thru Canada.



That's it for now. I've got a million little details to figure out and complete before this becomes reality.

Enjoy your trip

Hi Ann,

I'm in!

I really enjoyed your "Bayou Boogie" report. I'm looking forward to this one too.

Surrender to your "inner camper" ...............

Ride safe and have a blast!

Rob

In and subscribed. Looks like I may be the first to say: if your route brings you close to Indianapolis, IN I have tent space, a hot shower and a pretty well equipped shop, oh yeah cold beer too. Safe travels

Looks like fun and I know what you mean about not wanting to leave Montreal. That has to be the best big city I have ever experienced. NYC and Chicago can be tough on a bike. Those people don't have the same good manners as Canadians.
